Please join the Political Science Department and the Northwestern Prison Education Project for an info session and roundtable for those interested in criminal justice. 

NPEP currently serves five cohorts of 100 students each: four cohorts in Stateville Correctional Center and one at Logan Correctional Center for women. Students are accepted into the program by an admissions committee made up of Northwestern administrators, faculty, and graduate students. The process is rigorous and selective, and the program is in high demand. Upon completion of each course, students receive college credit through Northwestern’s School of Professional Studies and are eligible to complete a full bachelor’s degree from the University. 

NPEP includes a wide range of members of the Northwestern community, from undergraduates and graduate students to faculty and staff. The opportunity to learn and teach alongside incarcerated students provides an unparalleled experience for our participants. In addition, it expands the members of our NU community who possess the tools to confront the grave problems that plague our nation through the criminal legal system.
